Been A While

So, its been a long time since I’ve wrote on my WordPress. Here’s what I’ve done for the past 6 (six)-7 (seven) months.

I’ve moved to Eskisehir, a city relatively close to Bilecik, to teach English and save some money. I thought at a private language school called Asem Kids. I’ve posted a bunch of pictures of me and my students on my Instagram (@turkdragon13). It was a great experience for me. I’ve learned how to teach small and large children classes. One of the hardest things to do was to teach the unwilling and uncooperative 8 (eight) year old students. The young children were extremely hard to control however it still was a great experience. I also gave private classes to university students and people in international business. The private lessons consist of practical speaking, everyday / casual conversation, and English in the Business World (Professional English).

When I first went to Eskisehir I lived in a neighborhood called “Adalar”, it translates to “The Islands”. Their is a very small creek like river that flows through the city and it is beautiful. There is walkways, cafes, and restaurants on both sides of the river. I lived right by the river for about 2 months with the view of the beautiful scenery right under my window. After 2 (months) I received news of one of my closest friends had moved into the city as well, and not that far from me. Since his apartment was right on the Bars Street, I did not hesitate to move in with him. I lived there for about 4 (four) months and now i have returned to the city of Bilecik.

This semester in school I want to concentrate on my school work. Besides from the school, I plan on starting a YouTube Chanel for Video Game Vlogging (Yes, it is spelled Vlogging | With 2 g’s | Source: The word Blog; Blogged, Blog, Blogging). First I plan on buying a good 720p web cam and a USB microphone to start recording on my HP G56. Through the course of 6 months I’ll (hopefully) be putting together a monster Desktop to Stream 4K. I will first start streaming MMORPG’s and MMO’s that are free-to-play (like Dofus and Fiesta Online). This is because my current hardware doesn’t support anything made after 2006 (sadly :’c ).

So this is currently what’s going on in my life. I’ve pushed away from Music and Dance until I have the funds I need to continue pursuing life with my passion.

Ali’s On The Move

Hey Guys,

About three days ago I stater a new project where I travel around Turkey and report the highlights of each city. Since I’m located in Bilecik, I thought why not start here! I started shooting footage at the local historical areas and Cafes. Today, I just want to talk about how one Cafe went out of their way for me to get the best service possible. They offered me their best foods, deserts, drinks, and hookahs. I could have wrote about any Cafe however this specific one presented me with one of the most amazing hookahs I’ve seen in my life. It’s called a natural hookah and the original one in Bilecik can only be found in Agrilion Cafe. They allowed me to record footage of it’s preparation and personally let me decide how the taste was. It was so fantastic that I had to write about it.

The natural hookah is prepared using apple (the fruit) based products. What do I mean about that? Well let me explain the process of making one.

First, the hookah machine is cleaned thoroughly with water and pressured air. Then it is apple “ification” time. The inside is rinsed out with apple juice. Next, instead of a traditional ceramic head, they carve out an apple and fill it with apple flavored Al-Fakher Shisha. Then, instead of a water tank as the base, they use a custom shaped carved out watermelon and fill it with apple juice. The whole smoking experience from start to finish is just incredible. It literally feels like smoking an apple.

Upon taking the first drag through the hookah you can completely feel the sensation of apple take over your body. I’ve been smoking it since I shot a vlog and until long after I upload this post. This is because they also use custom coal that doesn’t burn your throat, doesn’t give you a headache, and doesn’t upset your stomach. This has been the most incredible smoking experience of my life so far.

The presentation even looks amazing. They use a special hookah machine designed to give a natural look equivalent to the taste. Even the way they deliver it to your table is un-match-able to any other cafe.

If your way ever falls to Bilecik, I highly suggest you check out Agrilion Cafe for their Natural Hookah.
